WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I haven’t met anyone who teaches you as holistically as Tish does...
"You really focus on everything… you focus on the technique, the skills, the business information and also focus on life skills…I learned from the V.O. Dojo how to be a professional and how to approach a V.O. Career…. When I met an agent at a workshop and she called me in for a meeting… I knew I was signed when I got two auditions the next day…I wasn’t like, "Oh my God! What do I do with this, I was able to say, "OK, this is exciting and I’m ready to get to work!”
Fun, inspirational, informative! You'll wish you took the class years ago...
"Tish will change the way you think about voiceover. Yes, she'll deliver countless juicy tips and tricks of the trade – but even better, she'll give you deep insights into the process of mastering the art of VO and help you develop your plan of attack. YSDVO is fun, inspirational, and astoundingly informative. You'll wish you took the class years ago."

Highly recommend this class!
“Comprehensive, interactive, mind-expanding, fun... Tish delivers a wealth of invaluable, always up‑to‑date information. Loved her focus on how to develop a consistent energy to support the work. I came away not only with improved technique, but with a clear sense of both how to continue to develop my craft on my own and what to expect in my professional pursuit of V.O. jobs. Highly recommend this class!”

An incredible experience
“Having the support of The Dojo makes me realize that what I considered a possibility is now a certainty.”
A fantastic place to learn and grow...
“...taught by people who know every aspect of their craft. The really wonderful thing is that while you're making an investment in the program, they actually invest in you. To put it crudely, they give a s**t about you. They care about who you are and how you're doing. I think that is something very rare and special."
Before I even finished the class, I booked a huge video game!
"So I took Tish's class, which was an amazing overview of the voiceover world. With her help I uncovered my ability to do video games, and before I even finished the class, I had booked a HUGE video game which gave me work for the next nine months. Tish was extremely insightful and gave me amazing direction and guidance. The money I made on the video game helped me buy an amazing microphone and make a video game reel, with plenty left over. Thank you, Tish. You are amazing!"
YSDVO Intensive, November 2011
Gave me the confidence I needed to win over the first agency I met with...
"Tish is great at demystifying and has helped me see that V.O. is a craft that's fun, fulfilling, lucrative, and accessible. Tish gave me the confidence I needed to win over the first agency I met with, and through her I received and booked my first audiobook audition. I so value Tish's guidance, wisdom and support and can't thank her enough for all she's done to help me launch a very cool career.”
“A safe and nurturing program that teaches the technical, emotional, and intimate aspects of voiceover... I have experienced a renaissance in all of my acting. This program has reawakened my love and passion for acting and my desire to communicate honestly, clearly, with joy and love.”
